Core beliefs
  • We believe that every child has a right to a fair and equitable education.
     

  • We believe that every child is capable of reaching their full potential when educational opportunities are made equitable. 

 

  • We believe that the achievement gap can be eliminated when initiatives focus on improving the environment and system in which the child exists.

 

  • We believe that parents/guardians are the greatest advocates for their children. When communities of parents/guardians are empowered, they can gain access to institutional resources and support. 

 

  • We believe that the students should have co-ownership of their academic success in partnership with teachers, parents, administrators, and district leaders.

 

  • We believe that when teachers and administrators actively seek to include anti-racist education in their classrooms and curriculum; regularly reflect on their own practices and speak out against discriminatory practices observed around them, then the color of a student’s skin will not be a predicament of their academic outcome.
